Given the endianess encoded in the byte, return whether this machine needs to swap bytes for the given data type T. Always returns false if sizeof(T) is 1. Will fail to compile if the size is greater than 1 and an explicit template specialization is not given.

Designed to work in conjunction with OEGetHostEndian. The byte returned by OEGetHostEndian should be written to the output file, then OEGetFileEndian will determine whether the bytes of the given type T need to be swapped while being read by OEBReadData.
